Donate Burial Plots
People's Memorial Association sells donated cemetery lots located in Washington State to raise funds for its funeral education and advocacy efforts. The plots are sold at 50% of their market value. If you wish to donate cemetery property, you may be able to take a tax deduction based on the current market value. The process for donating a plot to PMA is simple:
- Contact the cemetery for the market value of the plot. Ask what the transfer fee will be; PMA will pay up to $395. If an appraisal is needed, GraveSolutions.com will do so for a small fee and they will prepare tax paperwork for you as well.
- Contact PMA at email@example.com about your plot. A PMA staff member and you/the seller will arrange to meet with a cemetery representative at the cemetery if possible.
- At the meeting, the cemetery will have paperwork to complete which typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour. PMA will then pay up to $395 for the transfer fee. PMA will provide you/the seller with an IRS Form 8283 about the donated plot for your taxes.
